Syllable, AtheOS "Arno Klenke has completed the first version of a new audio framework for Syllable. The new system is inspired by ALSA, which makes it more Object Oriented, streams oriented and more flexible. Parts of the stream handling have been 'pushed up' into user-space as part of the media server. The first version supports Intel ICH and Via VT82xx AC'97 chipsets and the new HD-Audio standard."

Not the best ever but a good one. I like that you didn't add a ";-)"

About Syllable (or Atheos), the first time I read about it, I was expecting to replace my Linux with it once it would get some more drivers and applications. I liked the desktop approach of it. But the slow pace of its development (*) makes it look like a hobby OS (a nice one).

Is someone using Syllable on his main desktop? Or just using it as an end user at least a few hours a week?

(*)the project started only 3 years after Linux and hasn't reached the status that Linux had 8 years ago (when I started using it).
